In Thailand, there is evidence of slave labor conditions with very repressive disciplinary actions and human rights abuse of workers, as well as child labor in shrimp processing plants, according to the Mangrove Action Project (
"It's ridiculous to think that a multi-billion-dollar industry can be stopped," said environmentalist Ben Brown, who works for the Mangrove Action Project in Indonesia.
Mangrove Action Project executive director Alfredo Quarto visited Bimini in late April.
Because Western appetites drive the construction of intensive shrimp operations worldwide, in 1992 Charnsnoh cofounded the Seattle-based Mangrove Action Project, which connects an international network of 400 conservation groups and 250 scientists in order to protect the forests and promote restoration.
As this was a mainly scientific group, two years later, environment activists founded The Mangrove Action Project (MAP) an international network of 350 non-governmental organisations and over 200 academics, to campaign for the world's mangroves.
Alfredo Quarto of Earth Island Institute's Mangrove Action Project, predicts, "India will be a precedent for a worldwide movement."
One such effort is the new campaign for migratory birds launched by Mangrove Action Project (MAP) and its partner organizations in North America, Honduras, Guatemala, and Brazil.
When urged by Bangladeshi environmentalists to spare the area, Shell's manager for corporate issues suggested that the multinational had learned from its mistakes in Nigeria and that oil and gas development might in fact "offer the best hope for enhancement of such areas." According to Mohammed Ali Ashraf, forest and wildlife campaigner for Friends of the Earth Bangladesh, "Shell knew pretty well that there is no environmental law in Bangladesh [and is] taking every opportunity of the loopholes of our worthless judicial system." For more information, contact the Mangrove Action Project, Earth Island Institute, P.O.
Alfredo Quarto, co-director of the Seat-tle-based conservationist Mangrove Action Project, says that would-be farmers choose to clear mangrove forests (which provide coastal stability, protection from storms and nurseries for juvenile fish) because they're usually government-owned, under-populated and in poor areas.
Although it doesn't have an official government connection, the Mangrove Action Project operates out of the US city of Seattle, and has the backing of two other US environmental groups - the Natural Resources Defense Council and the Sierra Club.
Alfredo Quarto, director of Mangrove Action Project (MAP), recently attended the In the Hands of the Fishers (IHOF) Workshop in Brazil.
Thailand's east coast, where the industry got its start, is now a wasteland, "a scarred battlefield of abandoned ponds, dead trees, and contaminated land and water," according to Alfredo Quarto of the Washington state-based Mangrove Action Project.
